Is There Anybody Out There Listening?

This song was originally written and recorded after the earthquake that ravaged Haiti, but it speaks to the ravaged heart of the wounded, the witnessed and the wailing better than any I’ve heard in a long time.

In light of the horrible massacre in Newtown, CT, as well as the horrific shootings in Oak Creek (WI), Aurora (CO) and Oakland (CA) this year, it has become increasingly apparent that too many people walk around with unheard pain.  Too many people suffer undeserved agony at the hands of unleashed rage built from the heart of those whose pain goes unheard.  I don’t condone the act and I don’t pardon the actor, but before another whose pain is leading them toward such a vile and violent end reaches that point, I would like that person to know…yes, I will listen.

About carpebootium

I am a modern-day pirate. I travel the world and trade in today's currency, information. I sail through opportunity, comedy, history and strategy to turn turbulent into tournament, chaotic into cathartic, and embarrassing into emboldening. There are none who should fear me save two: Those who have what I want and those who get in my way. Are you done sailing your calm waters with strong undertow? Have you your fill of empty treasure and oasis destinations? Well good...come and join my crew! We're a lively lot from all over the world but be forewarned...anyone attempting to drop anchor will be thrown overboard, shot, harpooned and then marooned on an isle of cannibals. We move on! If you are ready...welcome aboard the Carpe Bootium!
